. that is because your money comes from jim demint. if you are interested texas, how could do not support our senior senator majority leader in the abandoned the majority party if the republican party? you will not commit to him. >> mr. cruz? >> if mr. sadler suggests that as a criterion voters should use, who will stand more closely with john cornyn, that is not a complicated question. john is enthusiastically supporting me with in this campaign. he is campaigning on the road with me. >> the question is whether you would support him. >> we will try one more time. >> would you vote for john cornyn as majority leader of the senate? >> he is not running for majority leader. >> would you vote for him? >> i know you are believing you are cross-examining a witness >> just answer my question. yes or no. >> i know you are leaving -- yes or no. >> let me know when you are done. >> give me a response, what ever it is, and then will move monday to answer my question. why what you answer? >> because you keep interrupting. would you like an answer? >> tell me. >> he will give you a response. >> john cornyn is

is a professor of law at osu and jim heath, a host of the sunday morning show -- guest: capitol square. host: let's go to steve on the phone. caller: i had seen some ads running in our area and i've been put off with the negativity. there was one in particular, my being an independent and very libertarian, i did not like the way the health care thing went on. so i am leaning more toward romney. it was one ad that the president was running about the automobile industry and how they saved over 100,000 jobs in ohio, automobile-related. it does not really mention that honda is the largest manufacturer in the state and did not get bailout money. ford and honda both hired more people than gm combined. host: thanks for the caller. we will get a response. guest: i don't have any particular response to that, but you see a lot of claims made in ads, some more true than the others. in terms of the economy in ohio, the unemployment rate across the state is about 7%. national average is now 7.8%. in other parts of the country like detroit, it's above 10%, get the -- yet that seems to be a case strongly democ

's why former secretary of defense and former energy secretary of the carter administration, jim schlesinger, in an open letter to "time" magazine asked governor dukakis, are you viscerally anti-military? jim schlesinger never got an answer. and the reason he did is because the governor of massachusetts doesn't want to answer former secretary jim schlesinger on that very important question. >> senator bentsen, i'd like to ask you about your -- >> tom, a last question for senator quayle. >> senator quayle, all of us in our lifetime encounter an experience that helps shape our adult philosophy in some form or another. could you describe for this audience tonight what experience you may have had and how it shaped our political philosophy? 4 -- >> there are a lot of sperpses that i have had that have shaped my adult philosophy, but the one i keep coming back to time and time again, and i talk about it at commencement addresses, i talk about it in high schools. i talk about it when i visit the job training centers. it is the advice my maternal grandmother, martha pulliam, who is 97 ye

like "let's just make up a number." that is not confidence- inspiring. and it was terrible for jim lehrer who did not have control of the debate at any point. i dunno if he needed more tools to assert himself, but that did not improve my view of either candidate. >> here's a clip of president obama talking about mitt romney's tax plan. >> for me, this is about jobs for the american people. >> do you challenge what the governor said about his own plan? >> for 18 months, he has been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he is saying that his big bold idea is never mind. the fact is, if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high-income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it is math. it is arithmetic. >> continuing to take your reaction on twitter. >> next up is kory from glen cove, maryland. >> our you doing? >> fine, thank you. you're on the air. >> the debates are premature game of chess. as a champion,

will watch. i think jim lehrer has stayed too long. i watched him in 2008 and he looked like willie mays. he was missing the curve ball by 18 inches and he really needs to step back. yes, i will watch. i want to hear what these men have to say. that guy from berkeley springs, west virginia, carl, the old geezer, he gets through about every two weeks and complaints. one more thing, brian lamb is much better looking than you. host: i won't argue. let's go to stanley on our independent line. do you plan to watch tomorrow night's debate? caller: no. this only one thing that can save the country and that to replace the irs with a fair tax. the top 20 countries in the world, we have the worst tax system. i am in the care society, living on social security. i could have a yard sale and all tax free. i put all my money back into the country. i spread it around, all the stores i go through and so on and so forth. i am the researcher for 14 friends and relatives with documented information on who in congress want to replace the irs. there are about eight or nine of them. allen west, i'm surprised he d

[laughter] i might add, it was seneca or cicero, i don't know which, who said that if it was not for the
from slavery to the leader of the free world within 150 years. we are only 50 years away from jim crow. i think we probably need to push this president if he gets elected. >> we have pushed from the inside more from the outside. in another four years i think we would tend to push from the outside. >> in another four years or the next four years? >> the next four years. and you are right, we have concentrated -- >> get that black supreme court member. >> you talk about we are thinking more in terms of national elections since. it is a matter of resources. the national congress of black women has been organizing and we only had maybe 20 or fewer chapters three years ago. we have 100 now. where are more equipped to work locally now, and we have many black women that we are pushing in local and congressional elections now. >> i want to bring up what we saw in 2006, and i moderated an event, a group of latino music publishers in las vegas. i pushed them and challenged them on this notion in terms of did latinos take advantage of the millions of folks who were marching across the country? ma
from missouri. let's go to the phones and get the callers involved. this is jim in waterbury, connecticut. good morning. go ahead. caller: linda mcmahon it said that chris murphy was not there in congress 90% of the time to make votes on issues. is that a fair accusation? is that just sort of how congress works that -- works now? guest: beat -- host: before we let you go, what is it like there in connecticut now? guest: last time she really bombarded you. it is a pretty bad race, a lot of mudslinging. host: ken rudin? guest: this is a state that they have no business being competitive in. the former chief executive of the world wrestling federation, linda mcmahon, spent $50 million in a big republican year and lost still by 12 points. she got some sort of complete makeover this year? or she is warm and folksy? she is taking chris murphy as someone who is out of touch. i still think that he has a slight lead, but the polls show them as dead even. democrats should definitely worry. this is the one where joe lieberman is retiring. host: new york, trevor, republican. caller: good
and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes

the structure of the debate was? >> this is the format that the candidates agreed to. i thought jim lehrer did a nice job tonight. i think is what americans are starving for at home, just an honest conversation between our president and our nominee. listen, it was an unbelievably bad performance by the president. i don't know if he left his heart in washington, but he did not bring it here, that is for sure. >> mostly i just feel bad for the moderator. we also hear from steve dodd. obama did not look poised tonight. his body language screamed get me out of here. >> what was the president not more aggressive? talk to the american people about where we are going and what we are doing. repeatedly he talked specifically about jobs, about the economy. things that matter to the american people. [indiscernible] >> there is only one candidate out there with the tax plan to reduce the debt. specifics are important for people to hear and that is what they heard in this debate. >> i would not agree with him at all. >> i disagree.

in the carter administration, jim schlesinger, in an open letter to time magazine asked governor dukakis, "are you viscerally anti- military?" jim schlesinger never got an answer. and the reason he did is because the governor of massachusetts doesn't want to answer former secretary jim schlesinger on that very important question. >> tom, a last question for senator quayle. >> senator quayle, all of us in our lifetime encounter an experience that helps shapes our adult philosophy in some form or another. could you describe for this audience tonight what experience you may have had, and how it shaped our political philosophy? >> there are a lot of experiences that i've had that have shaped my adult philosophy, but the one that i keep coming back to time and time again and i talk about it at commencement addresses, i talk about it in the high schools. i talk about it when i visit the job training centers. and it's the advice that my maternal grandmother, martha pulliam, who's 97 years old. we are a modern day, four generation family. the advice that she gave me when i was growing up is advice tha

thought mr. romney was very disingenuous. i watched the debates from top to bottom. jim lehrer asked mr. romney whether he supported the the vouchers that mr. ryan would be introducing to senior citizens. he dodged that question like a football player going through a pittsburgh steelers last night. i am a little cleared out. i would appreciate a lot more honesty on mr. romney's part. i probably will be leading toward the president. i am still winning. host: do you have two minutes? stay on the line. we will get a romney supporter on the line. i want to hear a little back and forth that we will moderate here. caller: sure. thank you. host: what did you think of the debate? caller: i enjoyed it and i thought to mitt romney 1. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would l
be with senator jim demint. mitch mcconnell said the first priority was to make sure obama was it first term president. there was the possibility of working on different issues. if you have some good progressives reelected -- elizabeth warren -- you have a chance to find partnership on core issues. even something the chamber of commerce signed onto. this country could use an infrastructure bank that would put people back to work and rebuild the infrastructure. with mitt romney, you need somebody to, and that will understand that 47% of americans are not freeloaders but part of a political system and a country that deserves the respect. paul ryan has put forward a budget. another of them have fully explain how that would cut tax rates 20% across the board. what kind of loopholes would they find? that is a tough fight to have in a congress where there is a belief in a fair shot. host: next is a caller from iowa, larry. caller: hi. thank you for taking my call. i watch too often. i have a big problem with republicans. i feel they have not paid a political price for the damage that was done to t
. >> it was more british style than american-style, which was good. >> do i think that jim lehrer was a weak moderator? yes. that is okay. it is not about the moderator. it is about the candidates, not the moderator showboating. i thought it was good. >> if you asked both sides, the romney folks would say romney -- irani folks would say obama talked longer and the obama side would say romney talk longer. >> president obama talked about 5 minutes or so -- 4.5 minutes more than romney. but i think romney was better. less was more. on the side of the room, yes, sir. >> i was wondering, have you seen any differences in the senate races where republicans associate with the tea party? if not, how could turn out affect that? -- how could turnout affect that? >> there are a lot of important races in november, not just the presidential. i do not know the answer. there are a lot of very close senate races, like charlie was talking about, in states that product -- in states that romney is probably going to win. missouri, north dakota, arizona. there are 4 states where democratic senate candidates are r
. host: they beat nebraska and that was a big win for ohio. guest: that was. host: jim is joining us from sunberry, ohio. caller: i was just wanting to make a comment. host: go ahead. caller: i'm in my 60s and my wife has been sick before. i think we have a short memory when it comes to what they were handed when they took office. i feel like when obama took office, he was on the titanic and it was getting ready to go down. somehow he pulled it up out of their and we are on pretty solid ground compared to what it could have been. we seem to forget how bad it was when this man took office. i am an independent. i don't think case it is what turned the states around. i think it was obama and the auto industry. i just think we have a short memory on what this guy was handed when he took office. host: thanks for the call. guest: i don't think anyone will dispute is argument that the president inherited a bad situation. we were coming through some of the most difficult times we have had. now we have had four years. we have had a 23 million americans that are still searching for employment. just
them to talk to each other. they did not want to do it. you see jim is trying to pull teeth to get them to talk to each other. i do a lot of research on televised campaigns around the world. the candidates spent the entire debate talking to each other in past debates. it is like a tennis or ping-pong game. the moderator's get out of the way and have a very little role. in america, the tradition has been candidates are nervous about confronting each other and being too aggressive or coming off as rude. they really do not like that dialogue. we will see what happens this year. the format for the 2012 debates calls for open-ended periods of discussion. that will force the candidates to engage with each other. >> with more than half of the debate focusing on jobs and economy, both senator obama and senator mccain were in the u.s. senate. they are used to addressing each other from the senate chamber. what is different for the debate? >> it is very easy to cross the line of what is acceptable and acceptably aggressive into something that becomes rude. i am thinking back during hillary clinto
arena. i am jim lehrer from the pbs newshour and i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama, the democratic nominee and former massachusetts gov. mitt romney, the republican nominee. this debate is sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and it will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15- minute segments with the first question and then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment semtex or questions via the internet and other means. but i made the final selections. for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission for the candidates. the segments, as i announced in advance will be three on the economy and one each on health care, the role of government and the governing with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics, and choices. both candidates also have to- minute closing statements. there is a noise exception right now as we welcome president obama and

"washington journal" live at 7:00 a.m. eastern on c-span. >> one of the things i've heard from a number of companies is that the sec has sometimes nonce had much alacrity with the respect to issues that are in the commission or delaying action on other issues. i wanted to think about different ways the commission could speed up its processes. i think that one of the key things the commission can and should do is unable more dynamic industry, get more spectrum into the commercial marketplace. there been a number of different proposals on the table. i have taken and all of the above approach. i tried to think of different ways that the sec could remove barriers to infrastructure investment. some studies have estimated for every billion dollars at the private sector spent a fiber deployment, 20,000 new jobs be created. from a regulatory perspective, my view is that our goal should be to
